Michael Fremer Rated 11/11 Music, 10/11 Sonics!
The latest chapter in the highly acclaimed Bootleg Series makes available the pivotal studio recordings made by Bob Dylan during six extraordinary sessions in 1974 - four in New York (September 16, 17, 18, 19) and two in Minneapolis (December 27, 30) - that resulted in the artist's 1975 masterpiece, Blood On The Tracks.
The 2LP configuration of More Blood, More Tracks assembles 10 of the most emotionally resonant alternate takes of each of the 10 songs appearing on the original Blood On The Tracks plus a previously unreleased version of "Up to Me."
"In the audiophile world, listeners often long for the transparent, magical "straight shot" into the studio, minus the post production and mastering tricks often added to increase a recording's commercial appeal. If ever a recording demanded that kind of treatment it would be these Blood on the Tracks sessions carefully re-mixed on vintage gear to create the ultimate "you are there" in the studio with Bob Dylan experience. Six tracks are with bass accompaniment and five are solo. The sound here is as "you're in the studio" as it can possibly be. Ryan K. Smith (un-credited but scribe marks on lead out groove area) cut lacquers from the 96/24 files and MPO pressed perfectly flat, quiet records. You'll love Geoff Gans' art directionespecially the record labels... - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, November, 2, 2018
